Relocating 220 outlet

I am relocating my dryer from the basement to the upstairs. It is 3 prong 220. Would it be best to run a new line from the fuse box (twist in type) or could I splice into the existing line? Thanks for the help.

You need to run a new FOUR wire line for the dryer. Three wire lines are no longer permitted, meaning that you cannot extend this circuit.

If the cable to the existing out-let box is "10/3" Non-metallic cable with 3 insulated conductors and a bare Grounding-condutor, or "10/3" Armored cable which is 3 insulated conductors enclosed in a metallic jacket, you can extend the circuit and connect the required 4-slot receptacle.

Good Luck and Learn & Enjoy from the Experience!!!!!!!!
